Meyerkord, Meyerkord & Kurth, LLC: A Legacy of Legal Innovation
A day that should have been a fun and educational experience became a day of fear for students and parents alike. A school bus full of students and chaperones was headed on a field trip Monday morning along the Dan Ryan Expressway in Chicago when it was involved in a crash with three other vehicles. Fourteen people were transported to hospitals for minor injuries, seven children and seven adults. The accident remains under investigation and the cause had yet to be determined.
Parents worry about their children constantly and the one place they should feel confident about sending them is to school. Unfortunately, injuries occur at school, along with injuries on the bus. School buses are designed to be safer than passenger cars; however, accidents still occur and while the injuries are less severe, the incidents are still traumatic and can take a toll on children and parents emotionally. Although school buses are the safest source of transportation for school aged children, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration averages 137 fatalities occur yearly from school transportation.
